Strawberry Bread

Posted by Lori:
I found this recipe for Strawberry Bread last week and couldn't wait to try it.  Today was the day.  It's quick to mix up, but like most breads...bakes for a long time.

It was worth the wait!  We all really liked it.  Most of us liked the chunks of strawberries in it, but a few in my family would have liked them you might want to put them in the food processor or blender for a few seconds to make the pieces smaller.  I was surprised at the cinnamon as an ingredient - especially the amount - but it wasn't over-powering at all.  It was great!

Strawberry Bread

1 (10 ounce) package frozen strawberries with juice *do not drain
2 eggs
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt (I didn't use)
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup pecans, chopped (I didn't use)

In a large mixing bowl, mix strawberries, eggs, and oil.  In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients and nuts.  Stir dry ingredients into strawberry mixture, mixing well. (I just dumped it all in one big mixing bowl and stirred it together....worked just fine and less mess :)  Bake in greased 9 x 5 inch loaf pan for about 60 minutes (mine took 75 min.) or until toothpick comes out clean.
